It was bedlam in the Motherwell end.
Louis Moult had just produced a moment of magic to send the Steelmen into the League Cup Final and secure his place in Fir Park folklore.
There was an almighty burst of joy among the Well faithful as their star striker sent his sensational chip over keeper Jak Alnwick’s head and in to the Rangers net.
There was also an explosion of pride.
Tucked in amongst the 8000 Motherwell fans were three men, each from a different generation, and none from anywhere near Lanarkshire, who were going through an emotional overload that will never be forgotten.
Moult’s brother Jake – who is a midfielder for non-league Altrincham Town – was there, along with his dad Arthur and grandfather Harry Walklet.
Watching one of their own steal the show was a special moment for a family who deserve a day in the sun after enduring some dark times.
Louis and Jake’s mum Vicky passed away a decade ago when the pair were just teenagers after losing a long battle with alcoholism.
Life hadn’t exactly been easy up until that point either but the family stuck together during the hard times and were going to make sure they were side by side for one of the best.
Big brother Jake said: “What a day it was. I was up with my dad and my grandad, my mum’s dad. And we sat in with the Motherwell fans.
“Louis could have got us tickets in the main stand with the rest of the families, corporates and stuff but we said we’d rather be in the crowd. We wanted to experience it properly.
“And it was a great decision. It was absolutely bouncing in there. We absolutely loved it.
“The Motherwell fans were singing his song and when his second goal went in it was incredible. There were lumps in the throat and a few tears in the eyes. To tell the truth, it was an emotional moment.
“We’ve never really been handed anything in life. We never had it easy. We always had to work for everything.
“We came from a working class background and had to work for everything.
“Losing our mum was obviously a tricky period for us as well.
“Look, it happens in life. Everyone has things they need to deal with but for us that was something we had to deal with.
“It’s how you come out the other side. People might think you could go off the rails or something but it was never really an option.
“Yeah, it was tough but you just get on with it. Things like that just make days like Hampden all the more special.
“And we are both happy, we’ve both got young families, and, hopefully, we are making mum proud.”
One thing’s for sure, the Moult family will be back in the Motherwell end for the final – and there will be a few more along for the ride.
Jake said: “There’s a ton of lads from around here who are going up.
“There’s only two and a bit years between us so we have the same group of friends and all going to pile up.
“We’re top of our league at the moment but it’s a long season.
“It would be brilliant if we can go up and Louis can win the cup.
It would be amazing for the family.”
